NRC: Government of Canada Highlights Science and Technology Linkages With the Republic of Chile

OTTAWA, ON, Canada | Posted on June 10th, 2008

"The long term economic and social success of countries like Canada and Chile depends on our ability to capitalize on the creativity and ingenuity of our citizens," said Minister Prentice. "I see our strong relationship with Chile as an important opportunity for both countries to learn from each other and-through partnership-to achieve great success together."

NRC, as Canada's premier science and technology organization, has a long history of scientific and technological breakthroughs. By working closely with industry, these research developments have helped create a competitive and innovative business environment in Canada. NRC is working closely with Chile on various projects ranging from large astronomy facilities to the development of important new vaccinations.

"In fields like nanotechnology, fuel cells, biodiagnostics and advanced manufacturing, we identify exactly what NRC can do to help industry get out ahead of the curve," stated NRC President Dr. Pierre Coulombe. "Working hand-in-hand with industry, we identify targets for each sector-like creating new vaccines or the very best diagnostics that will help prevent disease around the world, and generate wealth and real benefits for Canadians."

The President of the Republic of Chile and the Chilean delegation's three-day visit to Canada takes place during the 10th anniversary of the Canada-Chile Free Trade Agreement.
